Mindfulness & Well-Being
At St John Vianney, we know how important it is to keep our minds healthy as well as our bodies. In school, we have ‘Peace Out’ time, yoga, ‘Calm Me’ (in Jigsaw lessons) and we talk about our feelings and mental health.
Wellbeing is about our thoughts, feelings, emotions and ability to react to life. A good sense of wellbeing is feeling ok and able to cope, even when life or situations are challenging.
Try these 12 bite-sized mindfulness activities to help you with feeling calm and positive in these challenging times of lockdown.
Below are some links to websites which you can also access at home to help you learn to be ‘mindful’ and look after your mental health and well-being.
